The modeled Audi R8 from 2019 was created by our spy photographers in bright colors and with a certain camouflage over key areas.
These two yellow and blue painted testers show that changes have been made to the exterior design of the mid-engine Supercar will be minimal. Nevertheless, those with a keen eye will be able to notice the differences, especially at the front. Despite the camouflage over the nose, it's obvious that Audi designers changed the air intakes and redesigned the grille to make the R8 more attractive than ever.
To the sides, the presence of camouflage indicates that some new skirts have been designed. On the back, the facelift R8 adopts a different grille design that seems to extend the full width of the car. The presence of a small rear wing, a menacing diffuser and larger-than-life tailpipes indicate that these two prototypes could be R8 GT models.
Upgrades are also under the skin.  When a new Audi R8 GT is around the corner, many performance changes are inevitable. The power of the 5.2-liter V10 naturally aspirated engine could be increased to around 650 hp and possibly even to 670 hp. We would not be surprised if the top-ranked R8 GT also drew inspiration from the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and its liberal use of active aerodynamic components.
Beyond the R8 GT It is inevitable that the rest of the R8 series will benefit from the same visual updates. For some time, it was believed that a R8 with a V6 engine was on the market, but conflicting statements from the German brand leave the future of such a model in the US air. Given the demand for the only V10 model, Audi might find it difficult to water down the R8 brand with a V6 version. At least we hope that happens. Either way, the facelifted Audi R8 series, including the GT, should debut before the year.
